You’ve probably seen Tahnee on my website a few times already – she’s been a dear friend for many years, so I was thrilled when she asked me to be her wedding photographer.
This wedding took place in two of the most gorgeous locations, one of which is a secret (so shhh, but ok, I couldn’t resist sharing the view from their rooftop terrace).
I’m also so happy to say that it was featured on the blog French Wedding Style where you can see more photos from the event.
Tahnee and Yann met each other a few years ago and after sharing a round-the-world adventure, they came back to Paris engaged! They were originally planning to get married in the French countryside, but when they had the opportunity to have their reception in one of the most exclusive private clubs in the city, overlooking Place de la Concorde, they couldn’t say no! And let me tell you, as a wedding photographer, I was thrilled too.
Tahnee and Yann wanted to combine their French and Mexican backgrounds to create a colourful and fun wedding colour palette. White, green and Mexican pink were reflected in their florals. It was such a pleasure to take photos of such a bright and cheerful wedding.
Yes, Tahnee opted for two dresses for her day. In France, the official wedding is held at the Mairie, or City Hall, where dresses are usually shorter. This cute little number from Camille Marguet served as the perfect dress for dancing salsa.
The second, longer dress from Elsa Gary, was made in France and made a statement at the couple’s wedding reception in the center of Paris.
It was such an honour to photograph this wedding! I wanted to capture both the aesthics of the day, but most importantly, all the emotion – from the vows to the father-daughter dance.
As a fine art wedding photographer in Paris, days like these are a dream for me! We had a sunny day with gorgeous light, followed by a rooftop cocktail at sunset with a view of an empty Place de la Concorde (thank you Paris protests! While we were all worried about getting to the reception venue, it was all worth it once we got there).
Wedding photos in Paris
While I had initially thought of taking couple’s photos in the morning at the Louvre, I noticed that we were running behind schedule and I had to quickly find an alternative location. Luckily, the couple’s hotel – the Hotel Saint James Albany, had a stunning courtyard for wedding photography. We were able to get beautiful photos without running from place to place.
